I am a postdoctoral research scholar at Cornell-Tech, working with Professor Noah Snavely as part of the Cornell Graphics and Vision Group. My research interests are in computer graphics and vision, particularly combining pixels with more structured modalities, such as natural language and 3D geometry, to model and manipulate visual concepts.

I completed my PhD in the School of Electrical Engineering at Tel Aviv University. My PhD advisor is Professor Daniel Cohen-Or. I held various industrial research positions, most recently as a research scientist at Amazon. I received my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Technion (cum laude) in 2012.
